"The interviewers were very relaxed and conversational. Students were generally nice. I liked that ultrasound is interwoven into the curriculum. The sim labs were new, big, and impressive. The standardized patient rooms are modeled after the rooms you'll use for boards exams. The Anatomy professor opened up his lab to let prospective students see into an active class, answered our questions, and joked with us." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"The very rural location of the school." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"To look up information about A.T. Still just in case an interviewer asks you if you know anything about him, the history of the school, the history of osteopathy, etc. You will be talking to interviewers basically back to back for 1 hour and 30 mins (three 30 min interviews), so eat a filling breakfast/lunch and drink plenty of water to stay hydrated." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Overall, KCOM is a nice school in an isolated location. The professors are enthusiastic about what they teach and have an open door policy, which means if you're struggling you can come directly to them for help. Professors know you by name and genuinely want you to succeed. KCOM has its own teaching hospital attached to the school, which is unique and useful for service and rotations. The incorporation of ultrasound into the curriculum is an additional bonus that the majority of other medical schools don't offer." Report Response
